Storyline

The citizens of sleepy small town Fate, TX gather for the grand opening of Consumart, a shiny new one-stop-shopping box store. The eager consumers gleefully pour into the store as the doors open at sundown. Why is the grand opening at sundown? Who cares, they've got cut-rate prices on plasma screens and baby clothes! DVDs! Mayonnaise! Coffins! Coffins? And before they have to time to really question this item, terror ensues and the store erupts into a bloodbath. A few weeks later, three oblivious, self-absorbed twenty somethings - CARRIE, SAM, and BONE - head out on a road trip to Mr. Fire (a festival which shares only minor non-litigious similarities, all of a purely coincidental nature, to Burning Man) and accidentally wander into Fate, unaware of its population's ill-fated transformation... into vampires. Being that the heroes are 20-somethings, they do it. Carrie, a shallow hothead, is dating Sam's wallet, er, Sam, who is a whiny, naive, hypochondriac rich boy. Bone, a callous ...

New School Gore: The Vampire Version
8 May 2011 | by (Tallahassee, Florida) – See all my reviews

Being that Vampires are so "in" these days, it's pretty much common sense (for anyone who isn't a pre-teen girl) that this modern Vamp-trend is bad news, and should be avoided at all costs. But not so fast! If you didn't know, you need to know that the world of B-Entertainment has also jumped on this bandwagon. A bandwagon which just got a lot bloodier. Blood On The Highway is a micro-budgeted Horror/comedy which flaunts a rotten attitude from beginning to end. We start out with an unlikeable, mean-spirited cast. An annoying wuss, his angry, gold diggin' girlfriend, and his so-called best friend (who is obviously sleeping with the girlfriend), head out for a road trip to a concert. Unfortunately, said wuss gets car sick and vomits all over the map, which only causes the little fella to get bullied even more. It doesn't take long for the pointless trio to wander in to a town of Vampires, only to be rescued and taken to a house of "survivors". Most of which, make the vampires look normal.Blood On The Highway is a Troma-ish Vampire version of Shaun Of The Dead. And despite having a description that makes it sound slightly goofy, Blood On The Highway has a very clever humor about it (I realize I just called it Troma-ish AND clever, but just go with it). Never getting too funny to stop being dark. The three main characters lack of concern for each other, along with their interaction with the other humans, never gets old. And neither does the gore! And if you're now convinced that Blood On The Highway is your kind of movie, but feel it could use a companion piece for a double-feature, Chris Seaver's Taintlight is waiting. So, in closing. If the Twilight saga makes you as sick as it does me, and you happen to love constant tear-inducing comedy, you're gonna wanna give Bloody On The Highway an honest chance. You just might love it. Nevermind the Vamp-trend. Support real independent cinema! 8/10
